    Obviously you don't peruse SlickDeals or FatWallet.

    First rule of online bargain shopping: Never call.

    You don't get it. It's easier to call EDWARD GREEN about RLPL specs than Polo itself, but they have nothing whatsoever to do with Polo after selling the shoes.

    Anyway, I was telling whoopee on the phone that I thought I recalled seeing suede Mackay-like shoes at the Mansion last November very heavily marked down. I'm hoping they're 888 last shoes. [​IMG]

    Did someone save the thread about last year's glitch? Maybe we can recycle the legal arguments for suing Polo if this wave of orders is cancelled.

    I was inches from pulling the trigger on a pair of these. Had my credit card info entered and everything. I'm either developing some amazing self restraint these days, or am just way too broke for my own good [​IMG] Let us know how they turn out!

    I can't imagine that it would be worthwhile to sue over $325. But if they sell them great. If not, well we move on.

    Shouldn't you be studying?? [​IMG]

    Too late for me as I picked up identical to this Tramezzas during Father's Day sale for a little more than 50% of what the Corbens are running.

    Heh, you should have seen the forum furor over last year's set of $100 off coupons on any purchase that didn't go through.

    I AM studying. The evils of having a beautiful, beautiful library modeled after the Parthenon or something, combined with high speed wireless.

    Can someone explain to me a little bit about why this is a good deal?

    Thanks

    These are Purple Label shoes, presumably. Normal retail for PL shoes is $850-$950. Sometimes they drop to $595 or so, on sale. They're by Edward Green, one of England's finest shoemakers. Even at EG's big sales, EG shoes usually go for $500+. So $341 shipped is a very good deal.

    Purple Label shoes also come with beautiful shoe trees that mimic the shoe's shape, and preserve the leather nicely. Especially considering these trees and even considering suede shoes don't command as high a price, you cannot get a deal like this on eBay or from discounters.

    I'm in the same position. If only I didn't have so many expenses for school.

    Eh? Would you rather have food or a pair of EGs?

    Maybe it's not a glitch... it's been several hours and the shoes' webpage is still the same.

    are these actually 'Purple label', I bought a pair off ebay that has this sort of cursive labelling on the insole with a typeset 'polo' on the sole. That particular shoe is very nice, but I assumed that it was a C&J, probably Handgrade. Could this be the same?

    Are we absolutely sure these are EGs?

    If the shoes in the pic are the ones that show up at your door, then yes.

    well, you know, EG shoes can be considered an expense for school if you look at it from a certain point of view.

    just ask you parents for more money, tell them there is an abrupt need for another college need. that's what i did!

    Then the pair of Ralph Laurens that I thought were a pair of nice C&Js are EGs. Nice [​IMG]

    I'm trying to buy a pair, but unfortunately polo.com only ships to US/Canada.

    Does anyone fancy buying for me, to ship onward to the Netherlands? I'm a size US7.5D

    Thanks,
    Luc
